The 17th Annual School Days Series
“No show is more important than the first one you see.
It’s a weighty responsibility to influence young minds.” – Jay Harnick,
founder of Theaterworks/USA, the nation’s largest touring children’s theater company.
The Music Hall’s Explore + Learn Program presents the 17th Annual School Days Series for the 2011-2012 season which brings children from 80 local schools, homeschoolers and families to the Historic Theater for high caliber, hour-long matinees. According to Chris Curtis, The Music Hall Programming Coordinator, “Explore + Learn: that’s the invitation The Music Hall - the Seacoast’s largest performing arts classroom – extends to all who want to open the doors of knowledge. Our longest running program, School Days Series, provides learning opportunities to our greater community by presenting live theater for young learners, their teachers and families. We hope your young learners will join us and learn through the arts, as more than 20,000 school children do here annually at The Music Hall. The upcoming School Days Series season features shows based on best-selling books like Goodnight Moon and so much more! And, it is also filled with opportunities for teachers and other creative educators. For most School Days Series performances, we offer detailed study guides available now at www.themusichall.org.
“We look forward to speaking with teachers and parents of home schoolers to arrange the details of class, home school or family visit. Space is limited so reserve soon! Explore + Learn with The Music Hall. Learning should always be this fun!”
